              • Appliances/Equipment

                Would like to see away to add your applinces and equipment for your properties list. IE you can have a picture of your stove and save the make, model, S/N, Build date, date installed and Warranty info. So when the tenants calls or e-mails you a problem you have everything in this program vs digging up this information. this also could link with your Work request and vendor. So when a Tenant does the work order part that can pull form a drop down of appliances or equipment that has the issue along with just typing what the issue is…

                  • Option to print or export Notes/History to a PDF

                    Being able to export the notes to a PDF is extremely helpful in property management because at anytime these notes may need to be referenced. Being able to export the notes would save time and work for the users of Rentec, as it stands now we have to do double the work to ensure every file is documented properly.

                        • Share Files to Multiple Owners or Tenants

                          Allow an "alt" multiple share feature in the file library so that one invoice can be shared with multiple owners. Example: A yard care invoice that charges ~20 different properties/accounts. Instead of uploading the same invoice 20 times and then sharing with each owner individually, allow one uploaded invoice to be shared with as many owners as required.

                                    • Allow single expense to be split across all units without designating each unit individually.

                                      Allow an expense to be split across all units easier. Currently clicking on every unit to create a split expense is quite annoying. simply have an optionto apply the split to all sub-units of a property.
